Just finished lunch, gotta go right back to wings, which were supposed to be done last night but are taking forever. I should have known a more complicated design would mean several more hours of work.

Now I remember why I don't make wings very often. It's really hard! Design a pattern, bend wire again and again and again until it cooperates (and then bend it a few more times because it undid itself), wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap with floral tape. Which needs to come in different colors by the way. I like the woodsy look of the brown, but would have preferred a silvery white or pale blue. Electrical tape looks too plasticy, even under shimmery fabric. I could wrap over it with ribbon but that would mean a) thick veins and b) hours added for glue/wrap/glue/wrap/glue/wrap process that floral tape conveniently omits with its pleasant stretchy stickiness.

Will post pictures when complete. If they are ever complete.

Might not have time to make my mask. Which means I will wear the pretty sparkly purple Venice mask from the dear [livejournal.com profile] coccinellidae.

I really wanted to make something to match the bracelet Myrrh gave me for Christmas. I have the means, but have almost run out of time. Maybe in time for summer Faerieworlds, heh.

Exhausting, and fun.

Wind! Getting dark already.

Oops, Willow curled up on my lap. <3 kitty. *petpet*

Moonbeam:





+4 )


Made from an original Morning Glory flutter pony I had from childhood - wings long broken and missing.

I had a unicorn named Sunbeam that I called Moonbeam now and then on accident. Now I have a pony worthy of the name.

Fortunte happenstances:

1. This is the only hair I could find to replace the original neon yellow/green hair she had. $1 at a thrift store. ! It just happened to have purple tinsel in it and be exactly the right amount to work with for re-rooting the mane and tail, allowing for enough discarded mistakes.
2. Roommates, combined, offered model paint, white spray paint, brushes, and glue I needed.
3. Named Moonbeam before knowing she would be completed on the night of the first full moon of December.

Still not done, but it's only minor stitching and the harness/straps left to do. Totally manageable in a day.

I may get up early and try to finish so I can bring them to werk for my coworker, who will be wearing them Friday.

But I may just bring them to her Friday morning. We shall see.
